Palestinian security services in Gaza City raided a social media conference on Sunday, stopping it from taking place. The police stormed The First Palestinian Conference on Social Media which was being held at Light House venue in the city, and halted the event, on the grounds organisers had not obtained the necessary permits.
Event organisers claimed that they had received permission from the Ministry of Information in the Gaza Strip. But security forces said this was insufficient and shut down the conference, which was attended by approximately 180 journalists and bloggers, and academics from Gaza universities.Tags: Gaza City | palestine | Palestinian Conference on Social Media | social media
